  • 8 ounces (2 sticks) butter, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cups smooth peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 pound powdered sugar


  • Line an 8X8 inch pan with aluminum foil, overlapping the edges of the pan 2 inches. (This will make for easy removal and clean up). Spray nonstick cooking spray on the foil. Set aside.
  • Add the butter and peanut to a large microwave-safe bowl, and cover with plastic wrap. Poke holes in the plastic to vent steam. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Carefully pull back plastic and stir to combine. Recover with plastic and microwave for an additional 2 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla and powdered sugar to a bowl and stir to combine, until the mixture becomes dull and loses its shine. Don't overbeat. Spread in prepared pan, use a rubber spatula to even out the top of the mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set. About 2 hours. Cuts best when it's been out of the fridge 10-15 minutes.
